anytime! you can also pre-register on the website (see link in previous posts) and there's a payment option for military. It helps out the morning registration folks and less stuff to write in the cold.

This is wheel to wheel racing.

In some instances, it is bumper to bumper, or bumper to door. But there's usually no contact.

Contact between cars is pretty darn rare; you're more likely to run off into the snow by yourself

What 'license' are you referring to @silverbullet830 ?

Well I was referring to the club competition license. But I also lost my Texas drivers license last week and haven't gone to the dmv for an AK license yet, so that might be an issue as well.

This is going to be a road course event on Big Lake right? Distance?

Also, how are cars going to be gridded and classed?

schedule say wasilla
probably like last year

http://aksportscarclub.org/bylaws-rules/comp-rules.html

8.8 ORDER OF START
The starting order (gridding of the cars) will be by the results of a timed lap or laps whenever possible. At the discretion of the Race Steward, starting position will be determined by drawing numbers for the position. At times when this is necessary, the cars will be gridded by class in the order of the numbers drawn within that class. For subsequent heats of a race event, cars will be gridded according to the finish of the previous heat, regardless of driver change; however, the second driver must have registered and qualified the car he drives or start in scratch position at the rear of the field.


and just for measure since no one looks for rules

8.10 ROLLING START
The rolling start, in which all cars are moving at the moment timing commences, shall be used for all club championship events. Other starts may be used for special events only, but in all cases the driver must have his helmet on and seat belt fastened at the time the flag is dropped. Rolling starts will be as follows:

On instructions of the Chief Starter, signals plainly audible to the full grid, shall be given five minutes and one minute before the scheduled starting time for each race. These will alert divers to man their cars, and crews to complete last minute preparations and vacate the grid (or pre-grid).

At the one minute signal, the Chief Starter shall take his position at the start line and the Grid Marshall will ascertain by hand signals that all drivers are ready, after checking each driver to ascertain that seat belts are fastened and helmets are on. He will then motion for the cars to move forward from the pre-grid or grid and begin the designated pace lap or laps as determined by the Chief Starter. Prior to the end of the pace lap or laps, the Chief Starter will assure himself that the rolling grid is satisfactorily lined up ad will bring the Green Flag from hiding in full view of the grid and will wave it vigorously until the field has passed the starting line. In the event the Chief Starter determines that the field is not properly lined up for the start he will hold up one finger signifying one more pace lap and will keep the green flag concealed.

I do not know what course it will be; I would plan on circle track unless Kent chimes in on this.

I'm pretty sure they've plowed in a road course, but I haven't seen it yet.

If sizable berms are required to prevent vehicles from leaving the coarse, then I don't see how there can be a race tomorrow...

Has seriously no one checked this out before hand?
